We meet Warumungu elder Leslie Foster, senior Traditional Owner of country surrounding this famous natural phenomenon south of Tennant Creek in Central Australia.

Leslie shares the dreaming stories of the Marbles’ origins and their creation by the Arinja man, weaving his hair-string belts, and his ominous presence still existing today.

He speaks of his 28-year struggle to regain rights over this land, and celebrates recent transfer of title over the Devils Marbles to Traditional Owners for shared management with the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Commission.

23-minute documentary, Director David Tranter.
